Tauzin, Green Question XM Repeaters

House Commerce Committee Chairman Billy Tauzin, R-La., and Rep. Gene Green, D- Texas, object to XM Satellite Radio’s patented technology that would allow the satcaster to broadcast local content on its translators. In a letter to FCC Chairman Michael Powell, the lawmakers state the FCC needs to examine the issue before finalizing licenses for XM’s terrestrial repeaters, including ascertaining the location of every repeater and “the interference issue justifying its existence.”
